Widely known as popular Italian ski resort Livigno is hosting a world-class skyrunning SkyMarathon® for the second year in a row.
Livigno, or ‘Little Tibet’, as it’s known, is the location of the second race, 34 km long with 2,700m vertical climb. The route weaves through untamed nature in the Stelvio National Park traversing the Swiss/Italian border. There are technical sections on ridges and sections above 3,000m altitude – all in true skyrunning style.
